The Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) is taking steps to fix the Tiger Creek Bridge in Region Eight; the bridge collapsed on Tuesday while a truck was crossing.
“We have an ongoing contract for that section of road which is from Mango Landing to Mahdia. The contractor is on the ground as we speak. We have already mobilised him to the site for him to do the assessment for emergency works,” Jacques Foster was quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.
He said the GGMC plans to swiftly meet with the contractor to chart a way forward.
Mr. Foster added: “Our engineer is going to be going in there [Wednesday] to meet with the contractor to make sure whatever the contractor is assessing is of good standard and we are going to execute emergency works for that bridge through him.”
